Opus by Harry Winston - The Opus History
2001 marked the beginning of the Opus Series at Harry Winston.
A human story, a unique creative adventure in the field of fine watchmaking, a technical exploration… Opus is all of these things at once, and more.
It is a combination of creativity, genius and expertise.
It is an incredible platform on which the most unbelievable ideas take shape, and the rare talents that usually remain in the dark are brought out into the light of day.
The Opus concept is one of sharing
Harry Winston partnered with brilliant independent watchmakers to turn their wildest horological dreams into reality. These creations speak to a level of fi ne watchmaking fueled by creative passion and audacious innovation, two values that set Harry Winston designs apart.
Tempus humanus est..
The Opus Series reminds us that time is, in the end and above all, a story of mankind.
What makes the concept unique is that the partners come together as equals and work in total symbiosis. Opus works because it is also about friendship, mutual respect and a shared passion for all that is subtle, challenging and daring. The result is a timepiece that neither partner could have created alone.
Each piece has a unique concept; character, a distinct aesthetic and groundbreaking technical designs.
